I love flowers that look like the sun, especially as we prepare for Monday’s summer solstice, also known as Litha
This piece of sunshine is Hypericum calycinum aka Aaron’s Beard or Creeping St. John’s Wort.
This will be a very special Solstice as we will also be welcoming the Full Moon — the Divine Feminine in all her glory!
The Solstice honours and celebrates the fire element, growth and self-empowerment and the Divine Masculine within us. Sounds like a third chakra connection to me!
On the Solstice, pay attention to your third chakra (aka solar plexus chakra or Manipra) ) and align with your inner sun source:
embrace yellow, the colour of the Sun —wear it, create with it, decorate with it, eat it. There are lots of lovely yellow foods to choose from such as bananas, peppers, lemons, pineapple, squash, Yukon gold potatoes, beans, tomatoes and more
exercise your core with yoga or Pilates
meditate with yellow or golden-hued crystals such as amber, topaz and citrine, and yellow varieties of jasper, tourmaline or quartz
empower yourself through affirmations such as:
“I respect myself”
“I stand up for myself and what I believe in.”
“I honour and celebrate the Divine Masculime and Divine Feminine within me.”
